Man Crush Monday

gatsby.gifBack in my high school English classes, one of the only books I read from cover to cover was the story of Jay Gatsby. The Great Gatsby.

He was the most alluring character, shrouded in mystery and living hopelessly in love. To this day, The Great Gatsby remains one of my favorite novels due to the way Fitzgerald used Nick as the narrator. But I really just love the book for Jay and that’s all I needed to cure my Monday blues.

Do you have a unreal crush on a literary character? Who is it!

    This book is one of my favorites as well. I live in Louisville where Daisy is from, and the novel mentions the Seelbach Hotel which is still in downtown Louisville. Walking into the lobby of this hotel is like stepping back into the 1920s. One of my bucket list goals is to sit in the lobby (there are many nooks and crannies) and read The Great Gatsby. I could probably do it in 2-3 hours.
